MAGNUS

Lean, High-Throughput Tissue Processor

MAGNUS

Engineered for Enhanced Throughput

MAGNUS (US PATENT 7,075,045) is designed to accommodate all types of histological specimens and workloads. Histotechs can process urgent and small biopsies, on demand, thanks to its double retorts and automatic arm configuration.

MAGNUS grants unparalleled workflow flexibility while enabling same day diagnosis.

MAGNUS eliminates toxic reagents such as Xylene and clearing solvents granting a much lower disposal cost and greatly extending the life of the paraffin wax. This results in a significant reduction of reagent costs compared to traditional processing.

MAGNUS fulfills all CAP/ASCO guidelines for assessing Her2, ER and PgR testing in breast tissues.

Why MAGNUS?

  • CONTINUOUS THROUGHPUT
    Fully automated, dual run processing.
  • LEAN WORKFLOW
    Reduced specimen turnaround time due to MAGNUS’ continuous automatic processing that never stops, even during reagent changes.
  • FLEXIBLE
    Optimizes any workflow.
  • XYLENE-FREE PROCESSING
  • EFFICIENT
    Run up to 6 runs per shift for small biopsies.
  • CONTINUOUS OPERATION
    No daily maintenance downtime.
  • REDUCED OPERATING COSTS
    MAGNUS tissue processor uses only 100% alcohol, resulting in significantly lower consumption of reagents overall.  MAGNUS does not use solvents in the clearing step, so wax polymers are not degraded and wax lasts for over a month.
  • OUTSTANDING QUALITY
  • SAFE BY DESIGN
    MAGNUS’ split manifold separates water-based reagents from all the other reagents, virtually eliminating the risk of cross contamination.
  • UTMOST RELIABILITY AND UPTIME
    MAGNUS does not pump wax in and out, eliminating wax clogs, the number one reason for tissue processor downtime.
  • COMPLIANCE
    MAGNUS can processes breast tissue for Assessing HER-2 in full compliance with CAP/ASCO guidelines and FDA HER-2 approved testing.
  • QUICK VALIDATION
    No change to your IHC protocols – MAGNUS tissue processor will run with your fixative of choice, thus all downstream test results (IHC, FISH, ISH, etc.) remain the same. No change to your protocol is required.
  • TIME SAVING
    MAGNUS allows for the direct transfer of reagents from commercial containers (5L / 1Gal supplier bottles) into the processing retort. There is no downtime for filling tanks.
  • HIGH SAFETY STANDARDS
    No decanting of reagents, no transfers and no reagent fumes.

Auto embedding

Engineered for Auto-Embedding

MAGNUS offers auto-embedding with Synergy, a unique patented technology. The specially designed rack has a leverage system that allows the molds and cassettes to sit in two positions according to the phase of processing, producing embedded cassettes at the end of the wax phase.

Through dedicated racks and consumables, MAGNUS can simultaneously achieve processing and automatic embedding. All types of tissues and dimensions can be processed and embedded with this method.
